85. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has received any reports as to the circumstances connected with the recent arrest of Mrs. Pankhurst in Glasgow; and whether he has been asked by the corporation of the City of Glasgow to appoint a commissioner to hold an inquiry into the matter?
The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part of the question, I received yesterday a communication from the magistrates committee of the Corporation of Glasgow, forwarding for my consideration various documents bearing on the subject, which I have not yet had time to consider, but no request of the nature indicated is made by the committee.
